Like A Brother is an album released in 2000 by members of three famous recording acts: America's Gerry Beckley, Chicago's Robert Lamm and The Beach Boys' Carl Wilson. It was released two years after Wilson had died from lung cancer and was the last album he recorded before his death.[2] The trio first appeared together on the song "Watching The Time Go By" from Lamm's 1999 solo album In My Head.
